Magnesium chassis give you the strength of a metal chassis while reducing the weight as much as 35%

XPL Coating- Xtra Protective Layer coating

XPL Coating gives you an extra protection on the exterior lenses from dirt, oil and scratches

Phase Corrected prisms

Phase corrected prisms produce images that have better contrast, a higher resolution and better color reproduction

Excellent Feel

These binoculars measured up to the claims made by the company. They have an excellent feel, not cheap and the low level light gathering is top shelf, just as good as any German/Japanese made brand' Don't get me wrong, those manufacturers make excellent binoculars but I did not have to pay several hundred dollars more than I did. These are not Astronomical binoculars but i can make out the Andromeda galaxy with them, on a near full moon to boot! I made a cheap adapter to mount them on a tripod and that eliminates the shaky hands I have to deal with. Wow magnesium body e2e glass get that somewhere for 5h beaners

Highly Impressive

From the opening of the shipping box, Athlon Optics brings forth an outstanding product. The field of view is bright and clear which will be helpful during low light (dawn and dusk) situations. It's so clear that I could see the individual hailstones falling from the sky. I passed the Cronus G2 binoculars around to two other hunting buddies and they were equally impressed. I will be purchasing Athlon Optics for my next optics upgrade. Once again, very impressive.

Cronus G2 UHD

These binoculars are amazing for the price. I was waiting for a pair of Vortex Vipers to come back in stock, but the binoculars I was looking to replace had an eyecup malfunction, so I took a chance on these. glad I did! They are heavier than most binos, but with the UHD glass, they still weigh a few ounces less than other UHD binos. If your're looking a budget friendly range, I don't think you can beat these.
